David Foster Wallace’s first story collection is a remarkable, hilarious and unsettling re-imaginations of reality by "a dynamic writer of extraordinary talent " (Jennifer Levin, New York Times Book Review).

David Foster Wallace was one of the most prodigiously talented and original young writers in America today, and Girl with Curious Hair displays the full range of his gifts. From the eerily "real," almost holographic evocations of historical figures like Lyndon Johnson and overtelevised game-show hosts and late-night comedians to the title story, where terminal punk nihilism meets Young Republicanism, Wallace renders the incredible comprehensible, the bizarre normal, the absurd hilarious, the familiar strange.

“Originally published in 1989 and available for the first time on audio, this collection of ten short stories by the late Wallace (d. 2008) exhibits his strength for exuberant storytelling peppered with pop-culture references…. actors Robert Petkoff and Joshua Swanson bring to life the humor and joy in Wallace’s writing…. Recommended for those liking the work of Sam Lipsyte or Thomas Pynchon.” Library Journal
